Sidetrack: Jeff Chang's 2010 Singapore autograph session date

Saw that someone looking for this information came in here, to a post on A-do's Taiwan autograph session instead. Thanks for your interest! :)

They have been announcing the date, time and venue on Y.E.S. 933 lately, so stay tuned there. What I did find online is that the session will be on 30 October, next Saturday. It's also stated on the 933 website that he will be attending the Singapore Hit Awards on 29 October, next Friday.

Just thought I could help to answer this. Although A-do and Jeff are no longer in OB together (A-do didn't renew his contract earlier this year, and I heard Jeff has set up his own company), Jeff is after all a good singer who deserves our support. :)

Update: The event will be held at City Square.

Registration on 成义国杜 closed again

Looks like the spam bot is back.

Get Every Touching Moment for free legally

I just saw somebody from the US coming in here seeking a Mediafire link to download this song. This is not the way I get copies of A-do's songs (or those of other singers for that matter) that are available for sale.

Some time back there was a link on A-do's official Facebook page directing people to page for the free Every Touching Moment Lite Apple application. It contains the audio file with lyrics, and photos.
http://itunes.apple.com/app/every-touching-moment-lite/id376756433?mt=8

Those who want a little more can buy this version which also includes the music video.

Both applications are supported by the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

I've already got my copy of the coffee table book + CD + DVD in June, and I saw it as a Recommended Bestseller at Vivocity's page one.

PS: I just checked my visitor stats again and noticed that this Ohio person I mentioned in the opening paragraph was Googling "jj lin every touching moment mediafire". I think this is a good time to mention that JJ released a song in 2005 lamenting music piracy. The irony was that this particular song became sought after on music-sharing websites along with all the other songs he released.

Some of the Every Touching Moment footage exclusive to the Singapore Pavilion at the Expo is shown here.

China talk show recorded in April

I haven't finished watching this yet, but this is good for a laugh. Among other things, there is a skit on how JJ Lin's 2004 hit 江南 is connected to pizza.

A-do's songs have appeared in another Facebook application

Another Taiwanese application, created by online music store KKBOX. Each time you play, you get a few multiple choice questions, where you have to guess within a minute as many songs from the played extracts as possible. If you get 5 questions correct in a row, you go into a 10 second bonus round.

I only started seeing A-do's songs as choices after playing for a while, but not as a played extract yet.

Let It Go is number 9 on K Box chart


This is one of my favourites from Fear No More, apart from Crying Ox.

Every Touching Moment CD+DVD+photobook to be released 19 May

This is the link that has already been posted on A-do's official Facebook page:

I am looking forward to the photobook - I didn't expect there would be one!

April issue of mainland Chinese MILK新潮流

Sorry I don't have a bigger photo, I haven't been able to read the text either. In any case, the photos are rather well-received by us female fans on the forum. :D

A-do's interview is slightly shorter than the tudou video, and the non-interview parts of the video are different. I am not pasting the video here because I can't stop the video from automatically playing on loading.

Fear No More is the ending theme for Life Navigators

A chance discovery I made last night. I am pleasantly surprised, because this is still quite a new song.

Crying Ox has entered the YouthBox chart


This is another Internet chart, one I discovered by chance. Again, voting is done via email. More details in the link.

Every Touching Moment

Sorry for the slow updates... this will continue till early May because of exams.

A while back it was briefly mentioned in an Internet report that A-do, JJ, Tanya and Stefanie were going to do a song for the Shanghai Expo. On Sunday the Malaysian radio station MY FM posted on their website they were going to air the song on Monday, and I heard it myself on Y.E.S. 93.3 on Monday night. On Tuesday Straits Times and Zaobao reported on it.

On Wednesday I was reading the papers in the school library, with Tuesday's Zaobao still there, with their photos on the front page. Within half an hour I witnessed a guy and a girl pick up the paper, look at the photos, then put it down again.

I am glad there will be a CD+DVD set released on the 30th at selected CD shops. I will certainly want a copy of the song and music video to keep.

Fear No More in《百万大歌星》Facebook game


Each game has 5 multiple-choice questions, where they ask you for missing lyrics, song title or singer, with 4 options to choose from. This afternoon I saw a question asking for missing lyrics from Fear No More, the first ever question I have seen based on an Ocean Butterflies song.

Werewolf has debuted on Y.E.S. 93.3's Pick of the Pops at the 16th position

Sorry for the slow updates... I have been rather glad of this Good Friday long weekend to recharge.

I am listening to A-do's Werewolf (nearly typed it as Werewoof just now) on the 933 chart, it's the number 16 song this week. Last week Crying Ox fell from number 10 to number 12, I wonder where it will be this week.

27 March 2010 A-do on 《明日之星》



I would have keyed in the Chinese title of the show, but right now my Sougou Pinyin IME has gone missing in action... I think I need to reboot to get it back. Will come back and update this.

(Update: The show is called《明日之星》.)

Tweets about A-do's e-awards performance


Just watched the clip of Liu Ling Ling and Budak Pantai performing and found it very entertaining. I think among all the artistes performing tonight, they are covering the most songs.

One video of A-do at e-awards up


What's happening is that they are uploading short videos of the ceremony one by one. Currently A-do's in the video of BY2 appearing on the red carpet.

mypaper review of Fear No More


This calls for the addition of the label called "reviews".

There were already some reviews in China (although the album will only be released there next month), I just haven't gotten round to posting the links yet.

Online telecast of 13 March e-awards concert

A-do's performing here!

It will start at 6pm, on http://sgeawards.omy.sg/.

It's great they are doing this, as this is a ticketed event. Probably because tickets have been sold out.

A-do will be going on One Million Singer

I noticed that there have been a couple of people coming here after Googling "One Million Singer" (or something else along that line), so will briefly write that A-do will be going on One Million Singer as part of the coming publicity for Fear No More. The other TV and radio shows he will be going on from tomorrow are stated on his pixnet blog.

I have two tests tomorrow and homework due after that, so hopefully will be back during the weekend to write something more detailed.

Crying Ox MV

http://snowado.pixnet.net/blog/post/24903354/1

A-do nominated for Singapore e-Awards


As A-do has been rather quiet for the past 2 years I was pleasantly surprised to read on 成义国杜 (we are back to http://ado.5d6d.com for the time being, until the server for www.yesado.com is reopened) that he has been nominated for the Most Popular Local Singer Award.

Registration with a NRIC or FIN (Foreign Identification Number for foreigners in Singapore) is required, and only one vote can be made per day. Voting closes on 28 Feb.

My votes for the other categories are Huang Jing Lun for Most Popular Male Singer, and Cheer Chen's 《鱼》(a beautiful song about moving on in life) as the Radio 100.3 Most Popular Song.

Apologies if you are only seeing a white box... it starts playing automatically when I go in to edit this post, but I still see just a white box when I am done. It's viewable at the link above.
If you can see the video below, please let me know which browser and operating system you are using. :)

Can you hear an ox crying?

8 Feb 2003 Billboard article

Thank goodness for Google Books! I heard of this article years ago, but couldn’t find a copy online before Google Books. Enjoy.

By the way, A-do's debut was on 1 April 2002, not 2001 as stated in the article. (In fact, there are currently no posts tagged 2001 here.)

After hearing《听见牛在哭》on radio 1003

It's wonderful, it sounds a little like one of the nice songs from the 90s. The DJs even took the trouble to announce the names of the lyricists (Eric Lin and Dr. Moon) and the composer (Dr. Moon) at the beginning of the song.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

It will also be aired tomorrow, 3 Feb. Hit FM will be airing it for the first time at 10am, so it should be around the same time in Singapore too.

This song was originally sung by 王杰. The video was probably recorded late 2002 or early 2003.
